2. Read and Prepare - Read the introduction and prepare to hear the audio.

Jennifer Lopez does it all. She’s a talented actor, a great dancer and a good singer. On top of that, she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world. Of course, that beauty makes the acting and the singing a lot easier, because people like her for her beauty and forgive some of her flaws in other areas.
Jenny has recently released a new album, titled This Is Me… Then, as well as a new movie, Maid in Manhattan. The new album is OK, the movie is actually pretty good. Read on to learn more!


1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Jennifer’s parents are from Puerto Rico. She says that it was her parents’ work ethic that made a difference in her life. She took singing and dancing lessons from age 5. After high school, she left home because her mother was scared by her decision to pursue show business.
Her mother shouldn’t have worried. Jenny has become a massive star. She has released 4 hit albums, as well as several big time movies. She’s one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, one of the most famous people on the planet, and has her own perfume and a line of clothing.
There are a lot of great J.Lo songs, but my favorite is her newest hit – “Jenny from the Block.” In the song, J.Lo says she is still the same down-to-earth girl who grew up in the Bronx. She sings:
Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got
I’m still Jenny from the block
I used to have a little
Now I have a lot
No matter where I go
I know where I came from

I don’t think Jennifer Lopez is a great singer. She doesn’t have a beautiful voice. She sounds more like Britney Spears than Mariah Carey. I also don’t think she’s the best actor. There are plenty of more talented women out there…
But none of that matters. J.Lo is a star. She’s amazing. She’s genuine. She’s extremely ambitious. She wanted to be a star and she made it happen. It wasn’t option to fail. I respect that.
I’m sure you’ve hear of Jennifer Lopez. The question is, do you like her? I’ve decided that I do. I hope you do to.
Rock on,

A stunning looking woman who is an excellent dancer. With Vanessa Williams, she is one of the few people who can actually dance in Hollywood.

By the way, she is now hitched with Marc Anthony who is also a good singer.
